New Kid in School

Being the parent of a child with an IEP makes me emotionally closer to my son. As we head to our first IEP meeting in our new school district, I have a sense of being the new kid in school. Even though my experience is being filtered through my own experiences and ways of handling emotions, I can relate to a degree with what my son is going through.

I decide to be hopeful and am determined, as always, to make sure my son gets what he needs. Underneath, I struggle with feeling a little self-conscious and even a little scared. The thought of it going poorly and having to “start over” in a new district is a bit exhausting. I will need to work on being in a more empowered frame of mind tomorrow morning, if I don’t somehow wake up that way.

    Just remember that you have done everything right. This will be a great new beginning as you move into the new IEP and the new school experience. You all are in a wondeful place. Relax and enjoy.
